I know that my croaking has been scarce around the Garden of late, and I apologize. Work has been terribly busy, and then my daughter and I went to Portland, OR for a mother/daughter trip to visit her soon-to-be college.
That brings me to the prompt:
Exploring the city of Portland, we came across a unique store that was filled to the brim with knick-knacks, tschotskes, geegaws, curios, and bibelots. We spent the longest time just gawking and taking pictures.
My challenge for you, Toads, is to choose a photo that inspires, attracts, or disturbs you and write a poem. Any length, any form-just let your imagination wander.
There were many more photos, and I had a tough time narrowing them down to these 10, but hopefully, something here will tickle your muse!
